Coffee Master No. 2

Coffee Master No.2
oil on plywood panel
6'' x 6"

It's been a little while since I had done something "shiny", so I went back to my favorite percolator. I inherited this Coffee Master from my folks who had received it as a wedding gift in 1951. They knew that I had coveted it since childhood, so they let me have it when they moved into their current apartment. It's still in great shape, and I suppose it would make a good cup of coffee if I gave it a chance. The percolator comes in two parts, and has such a wonderful shape. It distorts its' surroundings beautifully. A great subject for painting!
